Healthy Stadium Tours
Cambridge United Community Trust welcome different community groups to The Abbey Stadium for a tour of the ground followed by a talk about healthy eating.
If you have a group interested to come and see the The Abbey Stadium, we would love to share our club with local residents in Cambridge. Please get in contact with firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

"It was awesome to be in the stadium and see the pitch from so close by! It was a great great opportunity to see the stadium and even go into the changing rooms! We learnt about healthy eating and that was good too"

In January a group of 20 Year 11 students completed a joint project with Cambridge United. In return for involving themselves in a weekly football league after school, students were rewarded with a tour of Cambridge United's ground...and even got to meet the mascot Marvin the Moose.
The joint venture came about in September 2017 when Andy Farrer, representative of Cambridge United's Community Trust, visited Samuel Ward Academy to introduce himself and the project. Over a number of weeks students competed against each other in a 5-a-side football tournament, with a league table recording the results.
On the 25th January all students involved were invited to a celebration event held at the Cambridge United Glass Stadium, and medals were awarded to the top 3 players: Ben Robinson, Louis Newstead and Oliver Pilgrim. As well as this students had access to the ground, the stands, both home and away dressing rooms and the hospitality area where Andy gave us an overview of all the great work the Community Trust do in and around the Cambridge area.
This was a really exciting and rewarding project, and we hope to continue our links with the club throughout 2018...and beyond!
"I didn't know that Cambridge United had a charity - it was really interesting to find out about this different side
"The best part of the day was getting to meet Marvin!"
"It was really good to get a tour of the stadium and changing rooms - although we nearly got lost!"
"I was really pleased to pick up my medal for taking part in the project - it was nice to get out of school and do something a bit different"
"We really enjoyed getting involved in the project - it wasn't like work at all!"
